  3. Unable to Delete Temporary Files on Windows 10

    Seems to me that the replies above are skirting the issue: Why is it next to impossible to delete TEMP files in Windows 10. I have tried all the tools in Win10 and all the suggestions I've read in forums, but I am still unable to delete the TEMP files.
    Is this a bug in Win10?
